There is, unfortunately. You can't run multiple copies of Guacamole
under the same Tomcat instance - they would end up sharing the same
configuration and extensions. For copies of Guacamole which are
identical versions, this would work but would be strange (why not just
have one instance). For copies of Guacamole which are different
versions, the extensions and database schema from one will be
incompatible with the other. There are sanity checks during startup
which prevent Guacamole from trying to use extensions from other
versions, but those checks will erroneously pass for builds from git
as the version number has not yet been bumped.

You'll need to use a different Tomcat instance, ideally running as a
different user to avoid having to mess with GUACAMOLE_HOME.
